Has anyone ever bought live animals from supermarkets and kept them as pets? I feel bad for them due to their living environment and want to get some nice big fish for cheap.

I'm sure thousands, perhaps millions of people have done it.

But by doing it, you're supporting the industry. You're giving the shopkeeper more money to get more fish and subject them to conditions you yourself feel are inadequate.

Moral grey area really.

I'm pretty sure all the animals in the pic are sold as food.

It is possible but with a few caveats...

1) check on the species before buying as many food fish get freaking HUGE and impossible to keep indoors. The fish on sale are market size, not necessarily adult size.

2) Due to crowded conditions and lack of care (bred to die!) they may not make it. Be prepared to acclimate carefully and quarantine all new fish.

3) Enjoy telling people you keep the same fish you eat for dinner... as a pet!

I almost did. The grocery store I shop at had these crazy huge loaches and were calling them mud fish. They were so big and cute. Also, I really like loaches. But considering that the things were between 6 and 8 inches long each, the size of aquarium I would need to keep fish that big healthy is what made me decide to not do it. They looked like massively overgrown dojo loaches and were totally adorable. I had to stare at them every time I bought groceries.

Yes, that's very obvious. Not sure what your point is.

I've kept crayfish, a tilapia and blue crabs from supermarkets and the next time I see them I'm planning on getting some eels.

>fish are all the same generic stuff as the US
Not sure what I was expecting.

Also jesus christ the noises that poor dog makes at the end.

There's a international grocery store near me that not only sells fish but frogs and turtles...

Frogs are delicious, I never had the chance of trying turtle.
Don`t judge them.

Let me guess, the rest of your tank bit the dust within 48 hours because you didn't quarantine it first?
